32nd European Crystallographic Meeting ECM 32

August 18 - August 23, 2019
Vienna, Austria

The 32nd European Crystallographic Meeting, ECM32, of the European Crystallographic Association will take place in the main building of the University of Vienna, Austria, from 18. - 23. August 2019.  For all these reasons, ECM32 will be an effervescent and fruitful scientific, social and commercial meeting with many learning opportunities in every current aspect of crystallography.

6th International Symposium on Diffraction Structural Biology 2019

October 17 - October 20, 2019
Osaka University Hall in Osaka University Japan

You are invited to the 6th International Symposium on Diffraction Structural Biology which will take place at the University of Osaka in Japan

(ISDSB2019) is an international symposium organized by the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science, University-Industry Research Cooperative Research Committee, 169th Committee on Structural Biology using Diffraction Techniques. This symposium is positioned as an interface between academic researchers and industry researchers, as well as an interface between diffraction techniques and other related techniques in the field of structural biology. Symposium topics will include Macromolecular crystallography, CryoEM, software and databases, and drug discovery, registration and abstract submission for the symposium is now open and costs 25,000 Japanese yen for academics.

Practical Course - Practical Integrative Structure Biology

November 3 - November 9, 2019
EMBL Hamburg and Centre for Structural Systems Biology, Germany

Application of integrative structural biology requires an in-depth understanding of both different experimental approaches and computational modeling. To provide advanced training in such a highly interdisciplinary skill set, this EMBO Practical Course will teach how to interpret data from major structural biology techniques and how to integrate this data using computational methods. The course location at the Hamburg Unit of the European Molecular Biology Laboratory and the Center for Structural Systems Biology on the DESY campus will provide on-site synchrotron SAXS and MX beamlines for training. Hands-on practicals will use a well-studied model system, for which data from all main structural biology techniques are available. The participants will learn both how to collect at on-site structural biology facilities, how to analyze these data and how to subsequently build integrative models using major software packages developed by invited speakers. A guided visit to the European XFEL site is also included into the program, in part to trigger discussions on future integrative structural biology approaches.

27th Protein Structure Determination in Industry (PSDI)

November 3 - November 5, 2019
Wellcome Genome Campus, Hinxton, Cambridgeshire, UK

On behalf of PSDI and its Executive Committee, it is our pleasure to invite you to the 27th Protein Structure Determination in Industry meeting which will be held at the Wellcome Genome Campus, Hinxton, Cambridgeshire, UK. Workshops will take place on Sunday the 3rd of November, followed by a welcome reception. Scientific sessions and exhibition will be held on Monday the 4th and Tuesday the 5th of November, with a conference dinner in central Cambridge on the 4th.

Scientific talks will cluster around the following major themes:

  • structure and biophysics based drug design stories
  • cryoEM in a pharmaceutical setting
  • popular biophysics techniques, eg. HDX-MS
  • popular drug discovery trends, eg. degraders

Understanding Biology through Structure

March 16 - March 20, 2020
Hilton Santa Fe Historic Plaza, Santa Fe NM

This symposium, designed to bring together junior and senior scientists, will feature recent advances in structural biology including technology development, protein-nucleic acid complexes, viral pathogenesis and vaccine design, cell signaling, design and discovery of drugs, and structure, dynamics, and function of membrane proteins.

Speakers at the symposium will be encouraged to present sufficient background and experimental detail so that students can understand the significance, promise, and limitations of their work. Each talk will have a full 10 minutes of discussion (15 minutes for Keynote talks). Moderators for each session will help include students and postdocs in the discussion. Students and postdocs will have many opportunities to talk with more senior researchers at conference breaks, meals, receptions and poster sessions.

The symposium will include a poster session with up to 80 presenters. Registered student and postdoc poster presenters can apply for travel awards covering hotel and registration which will be awarded based on the applicant's publication record and abstract.
